Explore the local streets on a walking tour of the city
Led by a local guide
Leave your central Porto hotel by luxury coach, and then travel south along the coast to Aveiro, an old fishing town on northern Portugal’s scenic Rota da Luz. Now a vibrant university town, Aveiro has retained its charming fishing port roots, and its myriad of canals and beautiful architecture attribute to its nickname – the Venice of Portugal.
See its sights on a walking tour, admiring the attractive Art Nouveau homes that line Aveiro’s canals. Pass Museo de Aveiro, housed in a gorgeous Dominican convent, and then stop for photos by Aveiro Cathedral. As you walk, listen to tales about the town’s history, from its days as a small Roman settlement to a thriving medieval seaport.
Finish your walking tour by a canal and hop aboard a moliceiro – one of the brightly colored gondola-style boats that bob around the canals. Relax as your guide navigates, allowing you to sit back and admire Aveiro’s sights from the water during your 1-hour canal cruise.
Finish your cruise at Costa Nova, one of the town's beautiful sandy beaches, and enjoy some free time before returning to Porto. Admire the candy-colored fishing houses that line the beachfront, enjoy a snack in a café (own expense), and then meet your guide at the pre-arranged time for your journey to Porto. Your tour then finishes with a drop-off at the start point in central Porto.
